How long psychotherapy takes depends on several factors: the type of problem or disorder, the patient’s characteristics and history, the patient’s goals, what’s going on in the patient’s life outside of psychotherapy and how fast the patient is able to make progress

About Me

Hi, I’m Vicki.  I am a counsellor and psychotherapist and I trained at the Sherwood Institute for Counselling and Psychotherapists following a long career in law. I have a passion for working with client’s who suffer with trauma, disability and diversity related issues. I work on developing a therapeutic relationship with you where you can feel safe to explore difficult and painful issues in a confidential setting; issues that you may not have been able to disclose to anyone before.

Member organisation

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (BACP).

Children 11+

I work with children aged from 11 years +. Parents unfamiliar with psychotherapy may be unsure of whether therapy can help their child. Even if a parent has experienced therapy themselves it can be very different and daunting for a child.

Individuals

Individuals will face coming to therapy for different reasons and it’s my job to be alongside you, whilst you explore what is causing you distress.

Couples

I offer counselling for Couples. For each couple the desired outcome may be quite different. For some its about saying goodbye whilst remaining good parents, for others it’s making changes to the relationship they already have.

Simple Process

How Does it Work?

In counselling, you set the agenda for the sessions.  It is your time to talk about issues that concern you whilst I listen, empathise and check my understanding with you.  Counselling is not telling you what to do, it is about walking alongside you.  It is a journey of joint exploration of the problems you are facing whilst being contained in a therapeutic relationship. This will provide the confidence and space for you to express yourself without fear of judgement whilst insights are developed that can alleviate your painful feelings.

Step 1:

Your first session

In the first session you will have an opportunity to explore what has brought you to counselling and to see how counselling might work for you.  If we decide that we can work together, then we can arrange further sessions, which can range from just a few to longer term therapy, according to your needs.  You are free to terminate counselling at any time.  (This first session is chargeable at the normal fee rate).

Step 2:

Confidentiality

Counselling is always confidential. The nature of this confidentiality will be explained to you in detail during the introductory session.
